Blog comments Your Say

  • @mick - female genital mutalation is not done for religious but cultural reasons, ok!
    Forced marriages are also cultural. Islam does not prescribe any such backward practices.
    Focus on the facts and not fiction and the fact is that children are being abused from people who teach others the catholic faith and who pride that we are a Christian country. People must hang their heads in shame that in these modern times such heinous crimes are committed and these church mongrels are protected and in many cases sympthasised with.
    It gives me nightmares when these people who are supposed bo be religious do such acts of evil and eternal shame.

  • Resign, he must be arrested. It is sickening to hear his comments yesterday that proves the evil that resides in these unholy men of Catholic faith.

  • Coasty are you talking about the church (of which you are a hater of because to you it is fashionable) or is it the unions you are talking about.

  • Peter B it is just not the judicial system that needs to answer for a lot but also law enforcement, politicians also they have all failed to protect the kids it is not just the "church" in all denominations it is the whole community. What about the Muslim community and female genital mutalation for religious reasons, forcing your females back to where they come from for arranged marriages. Go to where the "todays" real issues are. Keep up the good work Peter.

  • I am not a Catholic, C of E is my denomination, do not attend church regularly. Very disturbed to hear all the Church Bashing occuring everywhere now.
    This whole thing about an Inquiry should have a Focus & Outcome.
    FOCUS: Law Courts, Institutions of all Types, Police Action & The Blue Card System.
    OUTCOME: Conviction & Sentences Past & Future, Offenders to be Branded/Tattooed, Regular Checks on Blue Card Holders and Applicants.
    This is just a broad look at the issue but we must focus more on these things not happening in the Future more than what has happened in the Past, thank you for your time.

  • The Australian Judicial System has a lot more to Answer here than the Catholic Church. If these matters have been taken to court civil or otherwise why have they not Convicted or Sentenced these offending Creeps, Hello is it just the Church, I think not!
